Tube 're gluing West/South Wales

So been away over the winter and came home to a very deflated thundercat, sadly where it's sat under it's own weight the tubes have peeled away from the nose cone.
Not sure I want to attempt the repair myself as the nose cone takes a real hiding in the surf so want it done right, there's also a mix of materials that adds complication and the corner of the GRP bow needs a small repair because it's snapped when the tube dropped.
Also want the repair to look good!
Thanks for any recommendations!

There are a number of competent people that I use who may be able to assist you, however most are around the Southampton area. There is Quinquari in Haverfordwest that manufacture & repair Hypalon RIB tubes but not sure if they would tackle PVC; 01437 721911. The RIB Shop in Southampton do repair PVC buoyancy tubes and they can be contacted on 01489 556800. Hope this helps.
